How to use these materials


Creating materials in your own language


We hope these help you in the collective fight against coronavirus (COVID-19).

In the Additional Resources folder you will find templates that can aid you in creating your own educational materials. Some of these are with text in English and some are blank.

The English versions can be translated into your own local language. The blank templates have illustrations on them but are otherwise blank, enabling you to insert your own text.


Please ensure that the text you add is WHO approved and only tailored to your local context. It is important that these posters are only used to spread reliable information.

Clicking the download button under each poster will download the JPEG version of that poster.
